It seems like Donald Trump is literally incapable of resisting the temptation to talk about his sexual conquests — even in the case of a mother grieving the loss of her child.
In January 2009, John Travolta and Kelly Preston lost their son in a tragic accident.
Their 16-year-old son, Jett, who we later learned had been diagnosed with autism, had suffered a seizure and hit his head on a bathtub at the family’s vacation home on Grand Bahama Island.
As Mother Jones reported, the now Republican nominee for president began by condoling Travolta and Preston for their heart-breaking loss — as any compassionate and empathetic human being would do.
But then the blog took a uniquely Trump-esque tangent, when he started recalling a failed attempt to proposition Preston.
“A long time ago, before I was married, I met Kelly Preston at a club and worked like hell to try and pick her up," he wrote. “She was beautiful, personable, and definitely had allure. At the time I had no idea she was married to John Travolta."
The bizarre piece of prose didn’t end there.
“In any event, my track record on this subject has always been outstanding, but Kelly wouldn't give me the time of day," Trump continued. "She was very nice, very elegant, but I didn't have a chance with her, and that was that.”
He even chose to compliment her for turning him down writing that, "Some people have values that matter to them, and she is one of them."
Trump eventually managed to end the blog by writing how his thoughts were with Preston and her family.
This strange find only further reinforces how Trump is helpless in restraining himself from speaking about his sexual conquests — successful, failed, or imaginary.
It’s yet another disconcerting insight into Trump’s rampant misogyny. It’s not surprising given everything else we’ve heard from Trump throughout his campaign for president.
Ranging from his comments about Fox News host, Megyn Kelly and Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, to former Miss Universe Alicia Machado and, of course, the Access Hollywood tape, are all evidence of one simple point — this is who he is.
This man could be the President of the United States in two weeks. That’s the real outrage.
